A Mississauga truck driver is planning to invest in a brand new car after winning the $50,000 top prize with Instant Crossword (#3218).

“I’m a truck driver and make frequent stops to gas up and take care of business so it’s fun and easy to pick up a scratch ticket here and there,” Surjit Sran told OLG at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto. “On the day I won, I played my ticket right in the store and when I realized it was worth $50,000, my legs started shaking!”

Sran has a few plans for his windfall.

“My dream car ever since I was young has been a Camaro – black with white stripes. And now that car will be in my driveway!”

The married father of two also has his loved ones in mind.

“We’re thinking about a family trip to Florida to visit the theme parks. And I’ll be topping up my children’s education funds.”

Instant Crossword is available for $3 a play and the top prize is $50,000. Odds of winning a prize are 1 in 3.84.

The winning ticket was purchased at Convenience K on Bristol Road in Mississauga.
